Yost-Parkwood-Wildwood Sanitary Sewer Project
Last Updated: 7/7/10
The purpose of this project is to replace various sanitary sewer pipes at three locations as described below:
This part of the project includes the replacement of the 8” sanitary main on Wildwood Avenue between Linwood and Dexter Avenue, and also the replacement and upsizing of the 12” sewer main that runs through Maryfield-Wildwood Park in the vicinity of Wildwood Avenue.
The replacement of the 8” sewer line that runs along Wildwood Avenue will result in brief interruptions in sewer service to residences on Wildwood Avenue. Residents will be notified in advance of such interruptions.
The replacement of the 12” sewer main that crosses Wildwood Avenue at Maryfield-Wildwood Park will result in the need to remove some trees within the park in order to allow for the construction. The existing wooden stairs leading down to the park from Wildwood Avenue will need to be removed, and will be reconstructed when the work is completed. All areas disturbed will be fully restored upon completion of the project, and several new trees will be planted in the neighborhood. The path running through Maryfield-Wildwood Park crossing Wildwood Avenue will be closed during this phase of the project.
The part of the project includes boring a new (larger) pipe underneath Parkwood Avenue at the Jeanne Street intersection, and also the relocation of approximately 100 feet of sewer in the lawn extension area on the east side of Parkwood extending south from Jeanne Street.
The part of the project includes replacing an existing sewer that runs between houses from Yost Street to Darrow Drive (just south of Margaret Drive). The new sewer will be installed with “pipe bursting” technology, which will eliminate the need to dig within the lawn area between houses.
The majority of the work for this project has been completed. Construction of the stairway on Wildwood Avenue will be completed this week, and restoration and plantings will occur at a later date.
Impact on Traffic & Local Residents
During construction, there will be intermittent lane closures and road closures in order to allow construction to proceed. Detours will be posted as necessary.
Due to the limited amount of space at most of these locations, it will be necessary for our contractor to post temporary “No Parking” signs so that work can proceed in a timely manner. Access to driveways will mostly be maintained during construction. If a need arises to temporarily restrict access to a driveway, the contractor or a City representative will knock on residents’ doors to make sure the driveway does not need to be accessed during that time.
Garbage/recycling collection and mail delivery will be maintained throughout the project.
Once construction is ready to begin, we will be sending out weekly e-mail updates to anyone interested in receiving them. If you would like to receive these weekly progress/schedule updates, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to the list. Please put “YPW” in the subject line.Questions or Concerns?
